    I am feeling quite nervous about doing my first posting.
    Not used to this kind of thing, Like you young whipper snappers.
    I am not sure if I am in the right place.
    Anyway can I ask you all a question.
    I have a HW35 and would like to put in a gas-ram.
    I have emailed theoben but as yet not had a reply.
    I was contemplating buying a pcp but when I wayed up the pros & cons.
    The amount of time that I am able to use the gun and the fact of how good the HW35 performs. I decided to remove the stock and smooth it down. (I am varnishing it at the moment).And tune it up to it's full glory.
    I love reading your forum and learning so much. "You are never to old to learn".

    :wave::welcome:not sure if you can get a gasram for a 35:confused:
    also instead of varnishing your stock why not put a nice walnut stain on it then oil the stock........or by the way welcome

    Pity about that. Would of liked to put the strut in.

    In that case I think I will just make the 35 a good springer and buy a pcp for a change of gun. Probably the HW100 T.

    You cannot get a gas ram for the '35, the '80 yes but its very expensive.
    The '35 is one of my all time favourite classic rifles that, with a bit of careful tunning and a good quality spring can still hold its own with more modern springers.

    Hi chaps, first time posting for me on this forum, just got back into airguns, after a few years lay off, just got myself a bsa, lightening xl, 177, and fitted a v-mach tuning kit, it was a nice gun to start with, but now its even better, no twang from the spring whatsoever, and the recoil is a lot smoother, straight back into the shoulder, fullbore, get your 35 a v-mach kit mate, you wont regret it:)

    Hi

    Hi Fullbore,I bought a HW35J around the same time I gassed my 80. I asked about the 35 and they don't have one. They didn't say they couldn't though. I might phone them up again.(If I win the lottery):D
    The new gun is made a bit better than the older ones. If thats possible

    I have decided to keep the HW35 as it is. And stretched out and bought a second hand AA S410 carbine. I hope I will like it. I am going to use the divers bottle for top up. I am looking forward to have some fun with it.:up:
